    An RPG worthy of the gods.

    Baldur's Gate has always been one of the greatest RPGs ever made. Tales of the Sword Coast made it even better. And so it's nothing short of incredible that BioWare were able to better that effort...

    Easily one of the best PC-based combat RPG's ever made -- yes, its that good.

    Rated on July 04, 2004 by dryden555

    Fun and varied tactical combat with loads of options for your characters as they develop. Really that says it all. The combat is quasi-turn-based and will turn off some, but stopping the combat allo...
